Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Cutting Drums

I started thread about 'Space>Drums", a while ago .
I mostly do whole shows . Post 79 , I read the reviews ( here and the Taping Compendiums ), and try and decide, whole show, "pruned show ( few tracks left off to fit on cds) or a highlights cd . For the "pruned " , or highlight shows , drums might be a logical choice to cut , but sometimes ( 93-95) that might be the best part of a show !
And sometimes, even in my favorite eras , if the sound quality is just sad, I will make some cuts, to get the essential parts, and wait for some fine day, when , hopefully , a better sounding version bubbles to the surface .
I did this with 3/15/73, . I made 2 cds worth of it , mostly the jams .
